How to Install a Whispbar Through Bar Roof Rack on a 2008 Acura RDX


Today were working with a 2008 Acura RDX and well be test fitting the Whispbar roof rack system. Well be using through bars, part number WB-S17 as well as the fit kit for our vehicle, part number BW-K490. We already have our crossbars assembled according to the instructions, so now were ready to fit them up on our vehicle. First well open the driver and passengers side front doors and well place our front crossbar assembly up on top of the roof. To position the front bar we need to measure seven and seven-eighths inches from the seam at the doors forward to the center of the crossbar. Once we have this set on boths ides of the vehicle we can go ahead and tighten our locking screws to secure the clamps to our vehicle.

Next well move to the rear. Again, well open both the passenger and driver door int eh rear and place our crossbar assembly up on top. To position the rear bar well measure 19 11/16 inches from the center of the door seam to the center of our rear bar. With the rear bar in place again well tighten down the locking screws, securing our clamps to the door frame. We want to make sure that our crossbars are secured to our vehicle and then we can reinstall the locking covers on all four legs.

With that, our Whispbar system is mounted to the vehicle and we can start mounting accessories. Thats it for our test fit of the Whispbar system by Yakima on our 2008 Acura RDX.
